Abstract

Liberal values are increasingly under dispute. What role does civil society (CS) take within this broader development? By analysing accounts of CS public media between 2006 and 2018 in Austria, this study investigates whether the legitimacy of liberal and conservative segments of CS has changed. About 900,000 articles from diverse newspapers and the most influential television channel, together reaching the majority of the population, are analysed using corpus linguistics methods. First findings corroborate the presence of a conservative shift and an increasingly morally charged public discourse. However, unlike in Eastern European countries, this shift does not appear to be promoted from within CS
